    Super weather today so I went to the range and did some testing and zeroing the creedmoor.
    Working up a ballistic chart and notes now.
    Had to make a small adjustment to get the turrets at Zero.
    Here's some of the data:
    Ammo: Winchester 6.5 creedmoor 125 grain:
    Muzzel 100 yds 200 yds
    Velocity: 2850 2682 2520
    Energy: 2254 1996 1763
    Barometer: 29.8
    Altitude: 898'
    Humidity: 34%
    Wind: 15 mph (right to left and down range)
    Pic one is at 100 yards making a couple adjustments to reset true zero on turrets.
    First two shots 1 moa low right, adjust windage and two shots low left. Adjust elevation and two shot just left. Adjust and 3 rounds dead center....I'm good.
    2nd picture I've moved out to 200 yards. First shots were low and some high as I doped the scope. Wind was pushing it a bit at 200 but final dope from zero was 1 3/4 moa down zero and 3/4 moa right windage.
    The final 8 shots were inside the first circle or in the red.
    I will take this as a positive. I was a bit surprised at my results......I think I even said to myself "WHO DAT!"
    Also added a pic from my 200 yard target stand back to the shooting area.
    Put my homemade portable target stand I made that fits in my trunk. On hinges and just two Zero acheived 100 yds 1.JPG Zero acheived 200 yds 2.JPG Zero acheived pic from stand back to shooting area at 200 yds.JPG Target stand 1.JPG Target stand 2.JPG screws.

    Picture #4: Is the inside board on the left the support for holding the frame upright?

    Both boards have inset screws (two) and two hinges. Bottom crosses over and goes into a hole bored in the left upright board as the top board has hinge on left side and when folded up, goes into the right up right.
    Wing nuts (two) tighten the two parts VERY SOLID.

    Then, what holds the whole thing up? Are there already holes in the ground for the "legs?"

    Metal stands set in concrete they slip in. Have plastic tubing they can set in as well if you want to move them to an odd distance.
    Just takes a couple of 3 way t and the pipe. Can take it apart as well for easy storage and carrying.
    Can put it (target frame) in an old chair bag and same with the tubing.
